right, sounds good. as a reminder: one thing we discussed last week was that we might need to make the spacing here match the spacing in T317661: [Table of contents] Increase threshold for when a section is active, so maybe they could both be 75px or something

On larger screens this doesn't present an issue, however on smaller screens it means that the content gets squished more than it needs to, for example:
|tools menu hidden (smaller screen)|

@Novem_Linguae thanks for raising this issue. We've been discussing this topic over at T259240: [Design] Discussion: differentiation/separation of interface elements/regions in Vector 2022. Could you add a comment over there, explaining why you think the tools menu should have a gray background? That would be helpful. Thanks : )

something I've wondered about in the past, which seems worth bringing up again given some people's frustration with the personal tools menu, is showing a few more items from the menu (and potentially adding labels) at larger screen resolutions:
@Prototyperspective a lot of updates have been made to the table of contents since you filed this task. Most notably the table of contents is now wider, and soon will be able to to take up more vertical space (T319315: [Table of contents] Increase max-height of TOC). Several other table of contents tasks we will be working on soon:
- T318186: [sub task] Show table of contents for pages with less than 4 sections
- T317818: [L] [SPIKE] Add configurability options for table of contents
- T314419: Increase offset for headings when clicking TOC links
- T317661: [Table of contents] Increase threshold for when a section is active
- T325086: When navigating directly to a sub-section, the table of contents section should expand (if collapsed) and be bolded
- T316060: [anon prefs] TOC pinned / unpinned status should persist across page views for anonymous users

@Sj I think it might make sense to wait another few weeks — once we've done T318186: [sub task] Show table of contents for pages with less than 4 sections and T316060: [anon prefs] TOC pinned / unpinned status should persist across page views for anonymous users — to re-assess questions/concerns of the layout shifting around. I think it will be happening much less frequently in general. Also I think it's reasonable that if someone collapses a sidebar the layout shifts, especially if our assumption turns out to be true that people aren't frequently expanding and collapsing the sidebars.

@Sj apologies for the confusion, I forgot we hadn't implemented this yet: T316060: [anon prefs] TOC pinned / unpinned status should persist across page views for anonymous users. We will be working on that soon.

all set 👍

@Sj thank you so much for all of this feedback (and your continued feedback elsewhere).

@Jdlrobson sorry for not providing mockups earlier on.
I'm going to resolve this task now because the original work has been completed, and our team is doing some board cleanup. I will of course continue to work on improvements relating to all of the above feedback. Where possible please direct further comments to the more specific, open tasks that I've linked to. Or to create a new task if there isn't one that corresponds with a given topic.
just discussed with @nray

@Jdlrobson I defer to @ovasileva regarding the importance of this change, and how much work is worth putting into it.
In case it wasn't clear, my thinking was just that: optional preferences are off by default, and then turning one on should modify the default experience (like the preference right above, "Enable responsive mode"). But perhaps that's overthinking it...maybe it's fine for some preferences to be on by default.

hey @Ferret & others, @ovasileva and I were discussing this some more today, and are curious what you think of https://di-article-tools-2.web.app/Blue_whale ? I think adding gray backgrounds to the TOC and page tools does a good job of making them distinct from the article content, and makes the page structure/areas much more clear (see https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG2/supplemental/patterns/o2p03-page-structure/ which recommends using background colors). I prefer it to Zebra #9, where the article content is framed in a white box, and everything else on the page is in a gray background. I still feel that Zebra #9 de-emphasizes the table of contents too much, and also adds unnecessary visual heaviness to the whole page (though I recognize that's quite subjective).

yup, that definitely looks better. I was trying to have consistent styling between the TOC, main menu, page tools, and personal tools, since they are all similar in many ways. thinking at this point it's okay to special-case the TOC (because I think that's one case where we want more line-height between the elements). I will create a separate task for that change.

looks good to me 👍

on articles with a table of contents, assuming the table of contents is pinned (which is the default) the toggle wouldn't do anything at 1200px
circling back to @VulpesVulpes825's idea of adding a slight box-shadow to the main (white) container, to make it more clear/intentional that the gray area is out of bounds:
Noting that we've heard a bunch of additional feedback from people:
- people are using the full-width toggle
- people would like the full-width toggle available at lower resolutions

@ovasileva looks like we still don't have tooltips on a few things, and this hasn't been fixed:
